Among the greatest traditions of your Denver Broncos is the rookie haircut, in which veterans wreak shear havoc on the scalps of first-year players.
And no one is immune — not even presumed quarterback-of-the-future Paxton Lynch, who proudly tweeted the photo of his new Munchkin Land-ready look, seen above.
Not that his cut qualifies as extreme. Indeed, plenty of other Broncos novitiates have suffered worse coiffure-related abuse, much of it inflicted by safety T.J. Ward, aka the Mad Barber of Mile High.
Below, see our 25 favorites from recent years, complete with our suggested name for each style, so you can ask the folks at your salon of choice to duplicate each one.
If you're insane, that is.
